Charlie (pronouns he/they) is a 15-year-old transgender teen who also has an autism diagnosis. Research shows that people on the spectrum are more likely to be trans or gender diverse, but little is known about why.
Who I Am follows Charlie’s social transition, with a realistic portrayal of the challenges faced when coming out to family, making friends, accessing healthcare, and learning self-love. The story is told through observational moments and Charlie’s own animated characters, The Fallens, coming to life. His mum and two younger siblings, also on the spectrum, act as important supporting guides into this vibrant family world.
